In January of 2010, in the year before the violent deposing of Libyan strongman Muammar Gaddafi, fellow leaders of member nations within the African Union gave Gaddafi a foreboding message: They voted not to renew his chairmanship of their continental league of nations, and they also rejected his push to establish a grandiose “United States of Africa.”

Gaddafi’s comments during the introduction of his successor were not optimistic: “The political elite of our continent lacks political awareness and political determination,” he said. “The world is changing into 7 or 10 countries, and we are not even aware of it.”
Apparently, it was Gaddafi himself who lacked political awareness. For since his demise, African leaders have shown a renewed interest toward continental integration.

In one sense, however, Muammar Gaddafi was correct in his in his post-election assertion to his African Union comrades. One of the most significant geopolitical events in world history is indeed occurring today. As Gaddafi observed, the African Union is not alone in its pursuit of regional integration. Gaddafi’s assessment that 7 to 10 super-nations are now emerging on the world scene is proving to be quite accurate.
